In 1993, Jason Kyle, a young soccer enthusiast, approached Britannia Community Services centre with the idea of offering a fun, co-ed recreational spring soccer league. Only thirty players registered in the first year but news spread quickly. Over the past twenty years the program has become wildly popular with over 1200 kids participating annually.
Every year the program has over 200 enthusiastic volunteer coaches and youth referees. Most of the staff are past graduates of the Britannia Micro Footie program, with many years of their old Footie t-shirts tucked away in their closets. Players love playing, and parents enjoy watching in the spring sun, reconnecting with neighbours and friends.
